The gameplay begins by taking the suspense; challenge and visceral charge of the original; and adding startling new realism and responsiveness; Half-Life 2 opens the door to a world where the players presence affects everything around him; from the physical environment to the behaviours – even the emotions – of both friends and enemies.
The player again picks up the crowbar of research scientist Gordon Freeman; who finds himself on an alien-infested Earth being picked to the bone; its resources depleted; its populace dwindling. Freeman is thrust into the unenviable role of rescuing the world from the wrong he unleashed back at Black Mesa. And a lot of people – people he cares about – are counting on him.
